Woooo 20 days into BEDA! *dances*
Now on to important things.
I know I just sound like a bandwagon hopper when I say this, because other people who highly influence my life (namely Alex and Hayley) just announced (in a way) something similar.... but I am going to try to stop wasting so much time on websites that don't add anything to my life.
To clarify, there are some Internet sites that are very important to me. This blog is growing to be one of my favorite things to do because I never feel more comfortable than when I am writing down my thoughts. YouTube is important to me. Obviously my email is one of my life supports, and I love keeping up with my favorite blogs and things because a ton of my friends are brilliant writers and I love reading their words.
But I'm going to stop cross posting my blogs on Maureen Johnson's ning. It's just extra work that gets me nothing beyond a few more comments from people who read it over there. It already exists HERE, it doesn't need to be there.
I think I'll stop dailybooth. This was a hard decision because I LIKE dailybooth, but I was looking at my usual tabs today on firefox and it was one that I didn't really care if it was there or not so I decided it would go. I was living a nice, happy, fulfilled life before dailybooth existed, so I can easily revert back to that.
I've already reduced my facebook time to checking my inbox for messages and replying to only the necessary wall posts. The myspace was abandoned months ago, but I have picked it back up for the sake of preparing fans for our new album. And this morning I deleted about 60 of my youtube subscriptions that I just don't watch anymore.
I miss reading.
When I was younger, I would read a book in a day. I would come home from school and I would grab my book and sit in the living room on my favorite side of the couch by the lamp and read until dinner. And then I would read after dinner until it was time for bed. And then I would read under my covers with a flashlight unless I heard my dad walk by my room in which case I would flick off the light and lie still, pretending to be asleep.
Ever since I was introduced to social networking sites and the magic of the refresh button, I don't read much anymore.
I'm not an extreme enough person to just delete everything like Alex, but I am cutting down. I'm missing out on things I like to do, because I am too busy reading about what every else is doing. THAT, my friends, is a sad, sad statement.
Kayley left me a comment on my blog yesterday asking me the following question because she is a smartass, so I will now humor her with my answer:
Q. Who is your favourite fiveawesomegirl?
I have my childbirth class today and I am so excited.
That being said, two night ago I had a dream that I had a child and I buckled the child into its car seat and we were going somewhere together. And then my dream shifted and I hopped on a bike and was exploring and finding all these awesome places and then my dream shifted again and I remembered the child and knew I'd forgotten to crack the window and it was probably suffocating. :/
And last night I dreamed I was showing someone how to change diapers. I don't even really know how to change diapers.
What is this class doing to meeee.
Grammar lesson of the day.
It's = it is.
"It's a beautiful day!" = correct.
"That is not how it's supposed to look." = correct
"Give the dog it's bone." = NOT CORRECT.
It looks like it should be a possessive, but trust me, it is not. ALWAYS do the "it is" test. Always.
That's all. I have a growing fondness for the people who read my blog and especially those of you who comment. This is such a nice little pocket of webspace. Thank you for inhabiting it with me. :)
